Types of Medical Errors That Can Lead to a Malpractice Case
Failure to Diagnose, Misdiagnosis and Delayed Diagnosis
One of the most common medical mistakes is an error in diagnosis. A delayed or incorrect diagnosis can mean the difference between life and death with certain medical conditions, such as cancer or serious heart conditions. Delayed diagnosis means delayed treatment. An incorrect diagnosis can subject the patient to unnecessary and even harmful treatment, while failing to treat the true illness. If your physician failed to identify signs of cancer, or skipped tests that should have been run, and you suffered great injury as a result, he or she may be liable. Consult with a Pottsville medical malpractice lawyer today.
An error in medication can cause great damage. Did a Pottsville doctor prescribe the wrong medication or dosage? Did the pharmacist make an error filling the prescription? Did your healthcare provider or pharmacist fail to warn you about dangerous side effects of the medication, or fail to note potentially harmful drug interactions? If you were further injured by any of these mistakes, you may be eligible to file a medical malpractice claim. Chat with a lawyer now to learn more.
One of the most devastating types of medical negligence is a preventable birth injury. A mistake during delivery and childbirth can cause lifelong complications for your child and extensive future medical costs.
